Summary

Moving beyond simplistic answers, Anouar Majid argues that the Islamic world and the United States are both in precipitous states of decline because, in each, religious, political, and economic orthodoxies have silenced the voices of their most creative thinkersthe visionary nonconformists, radicals, and revolutionaries who are often dismissed, or even punished, as heretics.

Author Biography
